Canmore Community Gardening Presents:
Blaine Andrusek, Master Herbologist, who will guide us on a day-long excursion to identify edible and medicinal plants in the forests, marshes and meadows around Canmore!
He will teach us about the wild plants in our backyards, their uses and the indigenous stories behind them. His personal and colourful lecturing style keeps education fun, yet extends his passion and reverence for the plant kingdom. Also a widely published photographer and writer, Blaine has illustrated numerous field guides and appeared in magazines as prestigious as Canadian Geographic.
Blaine began working with plants in the mid 70’s. He studied extensively with Wild Rose College in Calgary, where he now teaches Herbology and other programs. Blaine’s affiliations include faculty membership with several colleges, institutions, and advisory boards throughout Western Canada, the U.S. and abroad.
In season, Blaine conducts Herb Walks throughout Western Canada, introducing his students to hundreds of wild plants and their limitless uses. His version of ‘walking the talk’ has included wilderness treks of over 3 months living entirely off the land. It’s comforting to know his many stories are backed by firsthand experience!
